Selwin Expounds

It was warm enough in late December to roll
up my sleeves.
Well, first, let me just say ... congrats Bro!!!!!!!!!! Well, there isn't much to report this week. The first half just flew by and then the rain fell for the other half ... and it's  still falling.

We taught some people this week who, despite the season, decided learning more about God's will for them was way more important which made things a lot better and put an even wider smile on my face.

While reading this week I came across a really nice scripture (Alma 34:10).  It reads:

"For it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice; yea not a sacrifice of man, neither of beast, neither of any manner of fowl; for it shall not be a human sacrifice; but it must be an infinite and eternal sacrifice".

Truly a scripture for the season but most importantly it reminded me of this wonderful plan my Father in heaven has made for me and for all his children. I like to compare it to the building of a home.  One does not just build a home but one must first have a plan drawn of the home and gather materials and people to help in building it. But unlike a plan drawn for a home, God's plan does not need to be tweaked or adjusted and that is because it is a flawless plan. The Lord has done his part ... now it's up to us to follow His plan and to endure to the end.

The one who was central to that plan was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  As we go through this season, which is to celebrate Him, let us remember His great sacrifice for each and every single one of us and also take the opportunity not just to remember him for this season but remember Him each and every single day.

Merry Christmas to you all. I hope your season is bright and you will all be filled with the pure love of Christ.
